Chiesa San Pietro in Montorio, Rome: 3 reviews and 9 photos
In the courtyard of San Pietro in Montorio, where St. Peter is said to have been martyred, Donato Bramante?s 1502 ?little temple? reflects the circular style of architecture used in ancient Roman temples in the Foro Romano and in the near-by town of Tivoli.
In contrast to other 15th century Italian Renaissance architects, who favored the Ionic or Corinthian orders, Bramante uses the austere Roman Doric order.
This little church is such a sweet sight.
Even if you visit during hours that the church is open, 09.00-12.00 and 16.00-18.00, it?s not guaranteed that you will get an up-close view. The crowds would overwhelm the sweet little thing.
You will have settle for a view through the gate, which is to the right of the main church entrance.
Address: Piazza di San Pietro in Montorio, 2
